A major specialty retailer launching a new corporate division based in New York City needed select talent from the existing organization blended with a new senior management team as well as extensive new positions. Timing of the launch was critical due to the competitive nature of the retail business combined with the visibility of New York City. Prior to public announcement, the retailer selected HRworks to help. The initial recruitment was confidential.

Probability of relocation to New York City was considered along with traditional workforce plans to identify the necessary recruitment strategy. By using this process, HRworks was able to anticipate talent needs, speed up the recruitment process and shorten the time needed to fill the positions.
